Raven received his bachelor degree of Biochemistry at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Raven developed his interest in Biology as a kid and the passion has not changed throughout his life. Thanks to the passion, he achieved excellent results in HKALE and continued his biology journey at university. After having been through countless training in laboratories and further input of biology knowledge from professional teachers and professors, he came to realise the importance to pass down his knowledge and assist youngsters who are determined to explore more about the biological world. This was where he started teaching and became one of the most sought-after tutors in CANA.
Raven started off as a private tutor which allowed him to develop his teaching and communication skills. At this stage, with the recipient of numerous positive comments from students, he strongly believed that teaching would be the one and only career he would pursue.
Not only private tuition classes, he also returned to his alma mater and volunteered to conduct bridging courses to students. He enjoyed the moment but also realised the restriction of delivering classes in traditional school. As a result, he chose to explore an education centre which shares the same vision in teaching: small classes and interactive teaching, and joined CANA to start his teaching career. At CANA, with his experienced teaching, many of his students increased their interest in the subject, improved their understanding and achieved excellent results in various public examinations. By building a good reputation, majority of existing students are here by word of mouth.
Currently, besides playing an important role in teaching, Raven is also the centre manager, striving to organise course structures, optimise the daily operation at the centre, train for new teachers, follow students' progress and provide professional academic advice to parents.
CANA gave me direction in my application process. They provided many resources that helped me understand the complex US admissions process and gave me insight into how university admissions officers would see my application.
I knew I was in safe hands after my very first lesson with my consultant. The reading material provided much inspiration for my personal statement, and I was also pushed to navigate through difficult legal scenarios. Never did I imagine that I could feel so passionately about a subject, and would therefore like to thank “Cana” very, very much.
Cana’s services have helped me realize my dream of getting into medical school. The tutors have given me confidence and courage to fulfill my own potential in a time of uncertainty and nervousness. They have given me knowledge that extends beyond my academic career, I have also gained friendships through Cana’s overwhelming hospitality.
The tutor, being a graduate of Law from Cambridge, is very familiar with both legal concepts and the Oxbridge interview style. He is also one of the most articulate, critical and intelligent people I have ever met. During the sessions, he pushed and challenged me with the toughest and most difficult interview scenarios and questions. In many cases, I didn't know how to answer them, but he taught me that the most important focus was the reasoning process, not the answer itself. The training proved to be extremely applicable during my real interview.
The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.
CANA's consultant team consists of graduates and students from Oxbridge, I think that the team is very reliable, trustworthy and supportive. The consultants organised the tutorial timetable nicely, helping me to avoid procrastination and make me feel well prepared before the interview. Apart from technical support, CANA consultants also gave me invaluable encouragement during the application process.
Cana provides valuable advice on college selection which helps my daughter to develop an appropriate college list and find a best fit college. We have a better understanding of the U.S. college admission processes. Cana also provides good guidance in selecting essay topics and approaches which allow Esther to articulate who she is and what matters to her in a genuine and impressive way.
